“COAST IN SIGHT! MAX LIEBERMANN IN NOORDWIJK”
19 JUNE TO 19 SEPTEMBER 2022 IN THE LIEBERMANN VILLA
Between 1905 and 1913, the village of Noordwijk on the Dutch coast was an important place of inspiration for the German-Jewish painter Max Liebermann (1847–1935). The works created in Noordwijk are amazing testimonies to his growing fascination with the techniques and motifs of Impressionism. With the exhibition “Coast in Sight! Max Liebermann in Noordwijk”, the Liebermann Villa on Lake Wannsee, starting June 19, 2022, explores the importance of the coastal town both for Liebermann’s artistic practice and for his personal and professional network.

DONATION OF AN OUTSTANDING EXAMPLE OF PORTRAIT ART BY MAX LIEBERMANN
Thanks to a generous private donation, the Max Liebermann Society received the oil study “Portrait of Dr. Wilhelm Bode”. The impressive portrait of the then director of the Kaiser Friedrich Museum documents Liebermann’s role as a recognized and sought-after portraitist at the beginning of the 20th century, who had numerous personalities from art, politics and industry portrayed by him. His portraits reflected the intellectual and artistic elite of Germany at the time, which included the art historian and museum director Wilhelm von Bode. The final version of his portrait is now in the possession of the National Gallery of the Berlin State Museums.

Liebermann Villa receives gift of a menu card from the private estate of Martha Liebermann
To mark his departure from the board of the Max Liebermann Society, Wolfgang Immenhausen has presented the Villa with a generous gift – a menu card from the former estate of Martha Liebermann. The personal menu card was printed for the banquet on the occasion of Max Liebermann’s 80th birthday on June 30, 1927. Designed with four lithographed drawings by Max Slevogt, the card also features fifteen signatures from various guests at the celebration, some of them with dedications and congratulations to Martha Liebermann.

Carl Blechen (1798-1840) stands with Caspar David Friedrich among the most important German landscape painters of the early 19th century. Dramatic light and glowing colours characterise his works. Blechen was highly regarded both during his lifetime and after his death. Max Liebermann was a great admirer of Blechen. Following his appointment to president of the Berlin Academy of Arts, one of Liebermann’s first exhibitions in the Academy – in the November of 1921 – was a Blechen retrospective. The current exhibition at Wannsee explores Liebermann’s interest in Blechen and what he sought to show with his Berlin exhibition. The exhibits have been loaned by the Blechen collection of the Stiftung Fürst-Pückler-Museum Park und Schloss Branitz in Cottbus.
